Kranz was having the worst day of his life.
He’d been ceremoniously dumped by his long-time boyfriend for a much younger version. So he was homeless and jobless (he knew it hadn’t been a good idea to get involved with his boss). His car had been quickly repossessed and his bank account closed. He had cut off all contact with family and friends when he’d become Arnold’s boytoy and now had no one to turn to.
And his drunken hook-up at the bar resulted in his premature death and introduction into vampire society.
